satī to maiñ ho jā.ūñgī par ye mujhe batā

pahle agar maiñ mar ga.ī jalegā bhī kyā

sati to main ho jaungi par ye mujhe bata

pahle agar main mar gai jalega tu bhi kya

ye paisa kyā chiiz hai khule na is bhed

jab aayā mire haath meñ karne aayā chhed

ye paisa kya chiz hai khule na is ka bhed

jab aaya mere hath mein karne aaya chhed

mat aa.iyo tum shahr meñ ban ban nāchte mor

nirat ke dushman sab yahāñ kyā hākim kyā chor

mat aaiyo tum shahr mein ban ban nachte mor

nirat ke dushman sab yahan kya hakim kya chor
